Why stay here ...

Edinburgh Club Site is an ideal location for your holiday getaway. Situated on the Firth of Forth, the caravan park provides easy access to Edinburgh, Europe's festival capital. You will be ideally located for the many attractions, both modern and historic, that this beautiful city has to offer.

Edinburgh is a friendly, cosmopolitan city. Edinburgh Club Site puts you within easy reach of some of its most famous landmarks. You can visit the castle which clings dramatically to a huge rock face (home to the Scottish Crown Jewels), walk down the Royal Mile to the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's official Scottish residence), stroll past the historic Scottish Parliament Building or enjoy the tranquil green expanse of Princes Street Gardens. The caravan site location also ensures that you're well placed for the famously fun summer festivals, seaside strolls, a round or two of golf, Edinburgh Zoo and an almost unlimited choice of restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues.

The site is only a stone’s throw away from the waterfront where campers can walk along the promenade of Cramond and, only a short drive away, visitors can enjoy the popular coastal suburb of Portobello with its pubs, restaurants and shops.

Excellent City site highly recommended

The wardens on this site were knowledgable, efficient and friendly. The site was well managed and the toilets were immaculate considering they were a little dated. Overall the site is well positioned for Edinburgh. If you go out of the site and turn right it is a 5 minute brisk walk to Salveston Gardens where you can catch the No 16 bus to Princes Street via Leith and the Ocean Terminal or the No27 straight to Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle Its £1.80p for a single fare very reasonable.

Great city site

Wonderful as always. Super friendly wardens. Spotless facilities. Local bus services are excellent or use the private coach which comes right into the site. Prices for both are great value.

Sightseeing Tour

Just home from 9 nights at this site. This was our first visit. We were welcomed by a very friendly warden who gave us plenty of information on places to visit and bus timetables. The site is well kept and clean and tidy. The shower block, although spotless, could benefit from updating. We found the site to be ideally situated for visiting all the historic attractions that Edinburgh has to offer. Busses run every 10 minutes from close by into the city centre. There are plenty of dog walking opportunities direct from the site, a 10 minute stroll from site gates takes you to the promenade where you can walk to the lovely old village of Crammond, or in the other direction to Granton. The noise from aircraft has been mentioned by others, and whilst it is noticeable, we did not find that it spoilt our stay, in fact we became 'plane spotters'. We will definitely use this site again.

Friendly Staff

This was our third visit to this site. We were warmly welcomed by a very friendly and helpful lady who told us all we needed to know about the site and the area. During our stay we spoke to other members of the staff and all of them were very friendly and helpful. The site is very well looked after, all the pitches were clean and tidy with grass and hedges obviously well cared for. The toilet block was immaculate, it is obvious that the staff look after it well and keep it spotlessly clean. The site is a great place if you want to explore Edinburgh, it is a short walk to a bus stop with frequent buses into the city. It would be even better if there was a gate through the fence near the footpath to the bus stop. We would recommend this site as a great place for a holiday.

Nice Site

Just back from a 16 night stay at the site, we were there over Christmas & New Year. We have used the site before so knew how handy it was for walks along the promenade along the Firth of Forth, we walked along there a few times during our stay. On one review it was mentioned that the steps down the embankment were steep & slippy yes they are but there is a very sturdy hand rail to aid getting down, so we didn’t find the steps a problem. The site is very well maintained & the wardens are friendly & helpful, the facilities are looking a little tired but are nice & clean they would benefit from a refurbishment. On New Year’s Eve there were 4 power outages as the site was full so the on site electrics could not cope the demand, I think a bigger supply is needed. The site has green space to 3 sides & the road on the 4th side, I didn’t see it been the middle of an industrial estate yes there is one not to far away but not a problem with this. We didn’t find the air craft passing over an issue. We would use the site again.
